I got it setup and in the house. Bought 50lbs of sand. The LFS only had 1 bag left of sand, won't get anymore till about Christmas. I plan on another 50lbs.

 

5 Slow Gallons about every hour from the RO/DI unit...

This is a HORRIBLE picture of the sump, but I don't think I am going to use this one. The top where the drain goes to pours into a tray with holes in it, and then through some eggcrate and then it slopes down to the right. I don't think I can fit any equipment in here other than the return pump and skimmer. I have a 10gallon just sitting here I might build one.

Don't add any more rock!!! Its perfect right how it is. :)

 

I just had to say it...

 

Sump looks a bit small. Looking good though. Nice to see it inside.

Hahaha, that was a piece of live rock that I had sitting out for about 2 months.. Its prob base rock now... lol

 

But I don't plan on adding a lot of live rock, just maybe 50lbs or so on the left side. I want to leave the big blue right side wide open with maybe some clams in the sand bed or some coral that lays on the sand bed.

 

Almost there!! I just added another 30lbs of sugar fine sand. Iphone isn't the best for macro's... lol

I know I'm going back to the first page, but did you try hitting that bowfront from the inside? It probably would have busted alot easier, lol. Sweet tank though...i'm still trying to get my little 7 off the ground.

Hey Kraylen, I will arrive at your place around 6pm or so. I gotta head to scottsdale at 4 to get the dog, then traffic, and I gotta stop by my work to show some people that want to see the puppy. Send me a msg on my phone around 530ish

I think you have to hit something like that with a sharp object in order to break it...ever seen those little hammers that you carry in your car to escape? They are extremely sharp tipped!

Nice tank. Its even nicer in person. He's got some really comfortable chairs you can chilax in. What happen to your tank that you needed a brace. In regards to Nessbuilders tank.
